The first thing to do is preheat your oven to 350 and then start to wrap the slice of bacon around the cupcake tin and then once you wrap the outside, fold the extra bacon into the center to cover the bottom.  If you are using garlic or hidden flavors like cayenne pepper, rosemary, etc… put it on top of the bacon.  Now pour in one extra large egg to each bacon filled cupcake tin cup holder.  Now sprinkle on sea salt, crushed black pepper and whatever else you want to flavor your eggs in bacon cups with.  Place the bacon wrapped eggs into your oven for about 20 to 25 minutes and once the eggs are no longer clear, and the bacon cups are cooked, you can take them out and let them cool for about 4 or 5 minutes if you want.

Take a spatula and go around the outside of the non stick cupcake tin above and then pop out the bacon wrapped eggs inside the bacon cups.  Place each on the plate or whatever you will serve them on.  Decorate the plates and you are ready to eat these amazingly good breakfast dishes.  If you’ve ever wanted a cool way to serve bacon and eggs.  This easy to do recipe for how to cook eggs inside bacon is the perfect way to start learning to create bacon cups and eggs wrapped in bacon.  Thank you again for reading and please come back to shop for aprons, share our posts and pages and also to find new recipes.
